Last week Canadian political cartoonist Michael de Adder’s drawing went viral.
He lost his job shortly thereafter.
De Adder’s drawing showed President Trump golfing around the bodies of two migrants who drowned.
In the caption Trump says: “Do you mind if I played through?”
The drawing was in reference to Oscar Alberto Martinez and his 23-month-old daughter Angie Valeria who died in the Rio Grande River trying to enter the US.
To be clear, de Adder technically wasn’t fired.
He was a freelancer working for a Canadian publishing company and his contract ended.
Officials with Brunswick News Inc. denied de Adder was let go because of the image, saying they were simply bringing back a cartoonist who was popular with its readers.
De Adder says he will rebound and has a book coming out later this year.
